MCC Spirit of Cricket Assembly


Croft took part in a special MCC Spirit of Cricket assembly led by Cricket Wales Community Coach for Caerphilly, Alistair Waldron.

Robert said: “The MCC Spirit of Cricket campaign is teaching children how to play sport, how to deal with success and failure and making them more rounded individuals.”

Pupils enjoyed watching cricket video clips before taking part in a bowl-off where pupils took turns to hit the stumps. After the assembly, a class of Year 5 pupils took part in a question and answer session with Mr Croft who explained how cricket had helped him in life. He then helped Alistair Waldron take a cricket coaching session in the playground.

Ty-Sign Primary head teacher, Alison Dacey, said: “Visits from sportsmen like Robert Croft broadens children’s horizons.”
